I'm not a religious person like in believing in an intelligent design theory, but i believe that everything living is connected in a way.
I was brought up with christianity, now my beliefs are more eclectic. I gained more truth in my own personal view of life, once I gave myslef permission to expand, discuss, and question things truely. I suppose I came to see that religion is locked in a battle with itself, and is not now capable of seeing its own true self, there is too much at stake too much to be lost.
So I explore in my own way, what truely means something to me. So I do go back to the christian story and to my mind I do not see this lived in christian churches, though there are some of the most beautiful peopl on earth are its members.
There are lots of beliefs here on this forum I have come across, and have found people to be genuinely tolerant of eachothers personal beliefs. A fair few do look at past lives irrespective of background too. This makes lots of sense in the astrological story and many other stories besides I think.

It is something very interesting that on different parts of the planet, on different times, seemingly unconnected to eatchother, religions were born.
All seem to have the same basic moral codes, as in being nice to eatchother, do not envy what belongs to another, try to be as good as person as possible. I am not religious but i can't see anything wrong with
people trying to live their lifes by this code, regardless of where they believe this code comes from. As long as we all have the same goal, the differences do not mather. I am with flea in the believe one should figure
things out for oneself. I guess i can allso understand that for some
people there can be a need for some sort of religion and that it can

However, this is the *horary astrology* section, not the general discussion session. I'm hoping you will move the thread to the proper forum.

im new to the board and just finding my feet with all the threads and posts.
I did not see the thread title sorry, however I do have a suggestion to make the Spiritual realm a bit easier to find, it is way down the list and hidden between Astrological humour and Help wth the forms and suggestions.
It may become a more popular thread if this was positioned a little more helpfully???? Pretty Please????

When you say "spiritualist" do you mean you are a member of the Spiritualist Church?

I believe more in spirituality and attaining higher levels of self than religion. religion has its usefulness, but meh.. not for me. too much people fight over beliefs.
